The Terminal software can program IP and GSM communicators compatible with the program via a serial port or Ethernet network. It has a Help menu, which can be activated by clicking the given icon with the right mouse button. The Terminal window can also be used to monitor and log the communication of the connected device. (Available in English and Italian languages.)
Supported products: IPCom, Com G, Com 4G, IPCom G, IPCom 4G.
To program the device, download the software from www.ascglobal.eu website. Open the parameter file corresponding to the device type (*.ets or *.et). The device can be programmed after loading the file and configuring the communication settings. The settings can be exported to a file with the Save submenu of the File menu (the *.ets file represents a new save, and the *.et file represents the original parameter file).
In the Terminal software, the display settings can be changed, the data read from the device, and the default parameters can be seen. Parameters different from the default setting are displayed in red.
The "Copy default memory" function can be helpful in case of any problem, by loading the default parameters and reconfiguring the necessary parameters step by step.
Serial and network settings can be made in the Settings submenu of the Communication menu. This is where the Advanced Commands option is, which contains advanced actions (such as rebooting the receiver, setting the date and time of the receiver, etc.). The use of the Terminal submenus is described in a separate help menu, which can be called up with the F1 key after starting the Terminal window.
In the Help menu, there is a help file on the use of the program and a separate help file for the parameters of the loaded device parameter file.
